Woo hoo! Add another name to the growing list of major celebs joining the casts of mega-hit British TV programs. Specifically, Mark Gatiss, who will be joining the fourth-season cast of Game of Thrones, a UK/US co-production.
EW announced Gatiss’ casting in GoT its exclusive yesterday.
The uber-talented Mark Gatiss, who, in addition to being a novelist and radio, stage and film actor, has acted in, written for, and/or produced episodes of Sherlock, Doctor Who, Being Human, and Agatha Christie’s Poirot, amongst many other British TV programs.
Now he gets to add Game of Thrones: Season 4 to his list of credits.
Gatiss will play… Oh wait, that information hasn’t been released yet.
Then again, Gatiss and/or Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss could do us fans a favor and tell us something about Gatiss’ role when they’re on their respective panels at San Diego Comic-Con tomorrow. (Gatiss will be on the Sherlock panel. For more info about this, read this.)
One thing’s for sure. Gatiss sure is a busy man.
